Alar Varrak: „ Nymburk’s Mahalbasic killed us under the basket. We could not stop him. We could not give a help to deep either, because they shot very well from outside as well. We were ready to neutralize Rancik and we managed to keep him under control. We also prepared against Simmons, but very last minute we found out that he wasn’t going to play. Dylan Page also played very well; he was missing in the first game. That shows how deep their bench really is, that with every game they have a different leader. We turned the ball over too many times in the first half and that didn’t let us stay in the game. We played a bad game.
